Really good stuff, I was very interested by Louis's parrys and trapping that seem very rare these days. What would the boxing experts here say about this, is it no longer relevant or has something like the glove-size changed its effectiveness?
A question about Joe Louis - in the career DVD sets i've seen he has more fights on DVD than Ray Robinson. Is there any reason for this or was the boxing spotlight shining more on Louis's Era due to World War 2.
Edit** I am not questioning Louis's skills but rather wondering why more Ray Robinson fights haven't been recorded compared to Louis.
Fair enough, that sounds logical since Heavyweights were more revered than any other weight class. As i am only new to boxing it just seemed weird that one of boxing's most revered fighters ever didn't have as many fights recorded as Louis (also one of boxing's most revered) even though fighting in a more technological age.
